As usual with feminists, their utopian view of "their plight" stops at their own cause for the moment..their own soap box. Generally speaking, it's been things such as forced blending of gender lines, abortion rights, demanding to not be treated as ladies, desiring entrance into male dominated institutions, gay rights, promoting sexual promiscuity branded as "freedom", and the desired abolition of men as the leader of the family unit.
Where have they been on Sharia? As usual on real human rights issues, they are silent.They must fabricate ways in which they are "wronged", in order to have a cause, when feminism comes down to a basic rebellion against God-given order. If the ways they are "wronged" are in the natural God-given order of things; such as "we don't kill babies because killing babies is wrong", then they have an issue. They are silent on man made injustices against women that Muslims perpetrate on a daily basis, because their feminism is only supported by liberals, which want the government dependance that Sharia will create, either knowingly or not.
While going into Muslim law-called Sharia, is way too extensive for this simple post, some of the highlights in regards to women, will be given here. Why this matters to us as a nation, is because we are fighting the fight for Muslims around the world while abandoning Christianity and walking over the Jews. It should also matter, because the UK already accepts Sharia law in their court system, and we have begun following in their footsteps.
While we always think of this garbage as "somewhere else", the truth is, it's on our doorstep. We have terrorists in our nation that want Jihad and Sharia law, and they are being trained to infiltrate us. When the Constitution is thrown out for political and one-world acceptance, then yes, we are now subject to anything that comes across the bench for our Constitutional abandoned Presidency, Congress and courts:
A New Jersey trial judge allowed a husband to rape his wife, because of Sharia Law. In the recently overturned case, a “trial judge found as a fact that defendant committed conduct that constituted a sexual assault,” but did not hold the defendant liable because the (Muslim) defendant believed he was exercising his rights over the victim.
Liberals and feminists support Muslim atrocities at every turn; they supported the Ground Zero Mosque, they omit the word Muslim from every terrorist headline, (while adding the word ‘right-wing, Christian’ to every non-Muslim crime-and NEVER retract it when it's found they are liberals, such as with the shooting of Rep. Giffords); the Ft. Hood shooter has never been labeled Muslim, though he is; TLC has a reality TV show about five Muslim women, and the entire program is spattered with hatred for Americans who "judge" their religion. The funny thing is, we Americans can read. When we read that Mohammed and Allah commands followers to kill people who don't convert, we discern that they are murderous!
Where is the outrage?! Why aren’t Gloria Steinhem, Rosie O'donnell, Susan Sarandon and all the other Hollywood idiots marching up and down the street with posters that say, “Stop hurting Muslim women!” Why isn’t our Secretary of State and Obama and all of the Czars championing this cause? Why do they continue to seek a Palestinian state when these horrific murders and crimes against women, gays, children, and those of other beliefs occur daily by Muslims. Most Americans know nothing of the Muslim Brotherhood, or believe they are for "freedom" in Egypt, and now the Brotherhood is bringing Sharia to more parts of God's Earth, and we're on deck as we speak.
The human rights atrocities are too many to number amongst Muslims.
Here is a letter written by Jewish Dr Arieh Eldad:
“I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every day needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.
This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.
We supplied all the needed Homografts for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg and discharged to return to Gaza . She was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in Beersheva.
One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt. She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital where they saved her life. It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would forgive her.
This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the Land of Israel . It is not a territorial conflict. This is a civilizational conflict, or rather a war between civilization & barbarism. Bibi (Netanyahu) gets it, Obama does not.”
I disagree with only one point here. I think it is naive to say that Obama doesn't get it. Oh, he gets it. He and all his Muslim friends, his Marxist friends and his feminist friends. They all understand why Islam and Sharia are good for government, bad for people and salvation. The only free democratic nation remaining in the Middle East is Israel.
Some of the major points of Sharia law, in regards to women, are:
- Women are worth less than men-their lives; valued as property, and girl babies are often discarded
- Under Islamic law, rape can only be proven if the rapist confesses or if there are four male witnesses. Women who allege rape, without the benefit of the act having been witnessed by four men who subsequently develop a conscience, are actually confessing to having sex. If they or the accused happens to be married, then it is considered to be adultery.
- Women are required to be completely covered, except their eyes. The reason is that it is supposed to curb the sexual appetites of passing men when women travel outside the home. Women are also not allowed to travel by themselves, or be alone with a man who is not a relative. It is not optional as a form of reverence, but rather the law, punishable by beheading.
- Sharia law permits a husband beating his wife. However, the beating must cease if the woman complies with her husband's demands. Beating is also intended to be the last resort of coercing submission, behind verbal abuse and abandonment. According to testimony in the Hadith, Muhammad physically struck his favorite wife for leaving the house without his permission. It is not known how he treated his less-favored wives.
- A Muslim man can divorce his wife by repeating "I divorce you" three times. It's a controversial practice called the talaq or "triple-talaq." A husband may say to his wife at anytime she is not menstruating, "I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you," and this effectively throws her out on the street.
- Adultery, (also rape, see above) is punishable by death
- A Muslim man can marry as many as four women, and have sexual relations with an unspecified number of slaves as well. Muhammad had eleven wives at one time.
- Men have a loophole to allow "sex on demand" outside of marriage. This allows men to have sex when he chooses. It is called Nikah Mut'ah, a fixed-time arrangement between a man and a woman that dissolves once the duration expires.
- Islamic law teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death. Beneath the surface, however, there are implied references to homosexual behavior in paradise, and it has been a part of historical Arab and Muslim culture. In the news recently, a new Fatwa (new decree) has called for sodomy in an effort to widen the anus to allow for the carrying of more explosives for Jihad.
This, of course, merely scratches the surface of what Sharia law wishes to bring to our door step, and what feminists promote via their unity with Muslim leaders, the President and the progressive establishment who are catering to Sharia law. Feminists are silent on Sharia law, and yet bash Christians at every turn. A few years ago, Rosie O'Donnell made a comment (paraphrase), "That Christians are the scariest group out there", yet never a mention made about the most rapidly growing group on the planet. Please remember that the cornerstone of Christianity is to live out our faith-to emulate Christ, who sacrificed his own life for others. Real scary.
It makes you wonder how big-mouthed and openly homosexual a feminist could be with a mandatory burka covering her head, and facing execution for her chosen lifestyle. It makes you wonder why feminists aren't worried: Because they are hypocrites, and don't actually believe what they say they believe.
**For references, please see the Quran and the Hadith-available in multiple places online or in libraries. For people who will say, "But what about all those peace loving Muslims I know", I would say, they are whitewashed Muslims, and viewed as infidels by their fundamentalist counterparts. If they want to follow Islam, they will be taught Sharia. We have also been taught that Islam and Christianity can peacefully co-exist, and do not differ from one another, thereby creating the heretical "Chrislam". Studies show that 81% of US Mosques promote texts advocating violent Jihad!Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
